What are Advanced Elective Modules (AEMs)?
Advanced Elective Modules (AEMs) were introduced by the Ministry of Education (MOE) to enrich the secondary school curriculum with more applied learning options. Taught by polytechnic staff over a span of 30 hours, AEMs are modules or subjects in applied areas, such as digital media, entrepreneurship, and hospitality.
Students will be given the opportunity to apply the knowledge they learn during the programme to practical real-life scenarios, and discover their individual strengths and interests.
Why should I sign up my students for AEMs?
Your students will get to:
- Experience polytechnic life in advance – our AEMs are conducted in the same way as all our other regular diploma courses
- Acquire new skills and knowledge not taught in secondary schools
- Discover and explore their passions and interests beforehand, enabling them to make more informed decisions about their tertiary education and career choices after graduation
- Enhance their Holistic Development Profile which will give them an edge over their peers when applying for diploma courses under the Polytechnic Early Admission Exercise (EAE) and Direct Admission Exercise (DAE)

What is the cost?
Students only need to pay $50 per AEM, which can be paid from their Edusave Accounts. MOE will subsidise the remaining course fees – up to $365 for every student per module – subject to students achieving minimum 75% attendance.
MOE also funds up to eight different AEMs (regardless of the number of runs per AEM) per school each year. Additional AEMs may be funded by schools directly.
